Human Uses of the University: Planning a Curriculum in Urban and Ethnic Affairs at Columbia University. Praeger Special Studies in U.S. Economic and Social Development.
Colmen, Joseph G., Ed.; Wheeler, Barbara A., Ed.
This curriculum planning project of the Columbia University Urban Center attempts to provide Columbia University with a complete profile on current and planned curricula dealing with urban and minority affairs; to recommend directions for the University's future development; to order these recommendations according to priority; and, to outline structural arrangements and strategies to facilitate their implementation. A number of surveys were conducted to collect opinion from various sectors of the academic community and other universities. The report includes discussion of faculty and administration views, student views, black and Puerto Rican community opinions, and national college curriculum in this area. The individual authors make their own extensive recommendations on urban and ethnic studies. (Author/JW)
